Abstract

The influence of vowel duration on the perception of different vowel ­qualities in Finnish and Estonian has been the topic of several of our recent studies; for the present paper, we reconsider some of our methodological choices, comparing various ­different solutions. In the area of test design, timed group tests are evaluated as an alternative to our original self-paced individual test setup and test reliability is explored through repeated tests on the same subject. In the area of test evaluation, reaction time is added as a second dependent variable and a more sophisticated statistical evaluation is applied. All these methodological variations confirm the trends already visible in the results of our earlier studies.

Keywords

Estonian, Finnish, vowels, intrinsic duration.
